The INFOCA management has confirmed through social networks that takes the Sierra Bermeja fire under control, after razing some 10,000 hectares since Wednesday. According to sources from the operation, the rain that has been falling for hours in the area has been the best ally of the troops fighting the flames.
The fire, which was at level 2, drops to level 0 and goes into extinction phase, which will be “complex” according to the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, who has thanked the “admirable work” of the checkpoints.
Last night the residents of Jubrique, Faráján, Júzcar, Alpandeire and Pujerra, and only those from Genalguacil.
Since last night it has rained on the fire area, and according to weather forecasts, the rainfall will go to more during the day today.
